SMGC COVID-19 Protocols


For the latest information regarding DBIDS, please read the DBIDS Credential Information page.

2020-12-15: Our updated member roster was submitted today to the Contractor Security office.  They request 96 hours to process the list. That puts the approval on Tuesday, December 22 by club calculations, so don’t go to the base contractor security office at the Las Pulgas Gate until Tuesday.

We do not have any activity scheduled until Jan 2 and 3, so we have plenty of time to get to the security center for updating the pass.

The pass for everyone will expire on March 15 which is the expiration of the lease extension. We are all in the same boat on this – they issue passes for the duration of the paperwork only.  As soon as we have the final lease update done, then we have to go thru the drill again.
